Last instalment of our Valentine’s mini series. Today we suggest you a nice little trip to Perugia, a city that will transport you to another times. Home of our beloved Baci, the chocolates with love messages, Perugia couldn’t be a better destination for a getaway with your significant other.
Today we bring you our second suggestion for a different Valentine’s: the magic city of Budapest. We can’t deny it: we have chosen Budapest not only for its undeniable beauty, but also because of Wes Anderson’s latest creation. Have you seen his new movie? Anyway, we have been reading great things about Budapest lately and it seems to be in everyone’s lips. Lips – kisses – Valentine’s. Obviously!
So Valentine’s, huh? We sure love chocolates, flowers and lovely jewellery but if we have to choose a present we choose travelling. A short getaway, a long weekend… that is always our favourite surprise. We have prepared three Wanderlust posts to give you some ideas for next Valentine’s. Avoid pink, little hearts and sticky candy. Pack your bags and go! First destination: Porto.
It’s been five years since we visited Barcelona the last time. Too long! Lately we’ve been thinking about its avantgard atmosphere, the sea breeze, the cool shops and museums and the incredibly beautiful architecture. Wouldn’t it be a great destination for a Winter getaway? We could escape to milder temperatures, light sunshine and the sea… oh, the sea!
I have a cousin who loves Winter sports. He used to spend the first day of the year hitting the slopes in the Pyrenees. I remember that our grandpa always admired him for that. No party, no hangover. Just a nice night of sleep and a fresh start for the New Year all healthy and surrounded by nature. I find it great, don’t you? Not my thing, though ;) But for those of you who are adventurous and sporty, here you have six gorgeous places to welcome 2014 that will be perfect for you. Continue reading
When I saw this picture on Pinnterest a couple of weeks ago I almost cry. That is exactly the place I dream about in Christmas! A wooden chalet with inviting lights in the middle of the mountains. Isn’t it picture perfect?
Now that the weather is cold and we spend most of our leisure time at home looking how it rains outside, we’ve been daydreaming about more appealing views. This is a selection of the best room views around the world. A girl can dream, right?
1. Hotel salto chico: a lodge located right at the heart of the extraordinary Torres del Paine National Park in central Patagonia. This lodge is places right on the banks of the Salto Chico waterfall. It affords an excellent view of the unique Paine Massif and two of the three impressive torres, or towers, which give the park its name.
Today we want to show you two amazing hotels which are placed in the two opposite sides of the American continent. The incredible Fogo Island Inn, placed in a remote island off the Northeast Coast of Newfoundland, Canada, and the amazing Fasano Hotel located in Punta del Este, Uruguay, one of the most important and popular tourist destinations in South America. North vs. South… two beautiful stylish design hotels. Who wins?
We wanted to make a getaway this month and spend a nice long weekend in London. But as they say, life got in the way. So sadly, we won’t be able to visit this fantastic place this moth. Nevertheless, we’ve decided to make a little hommage to London and share with you the 11 things we love about it.
We love hotels. That’s something we’ve documented in this little blog of ours. There is something about the crispy sheets, the little toiletries, the international channels on tv and the pretty breakfast that make us happy. We love the cosmopolitan feeling that you get when you enter in a new hotel, we love eating chocolate in bed while listening to foreign languages on tv after a great day exploring the city and… well, we love room service.
But there are other possibilities when it comes to accommodation. You can rent an apartment, you can even stay in a roulotte… or you can sleep in a castle. That would be the loveliest option for this season, don’t you think? Imagine great walks in the woods and sipping a cup of tea in front of the fire afterwards…
